Running Mayor for Blackburn with Darwen, Andrew Gardner has some words of wisdom for residents about how to make room for running to boost your wellbeing.

“Check the average daily screen time on your phone, I’m guessing it’s somewhere between 2 – 4 hours a day. Could you pull yourself away from the black mirror for 30 mins three times a week to invest in your physical and mental health? I’m sure you could.”
